Since the Third Wave of Democratization from the late 1980s, most of these countries ‘have established rule of law, functioning state institutions and relatively good governance.’ Such is the tempo of democratization that in Ghana, Senegal, and Benin Republic incumbent ruling parties have been defeated at the polls, leading to peaceful alternation in governance, while Nigeria has enjoyed the longest spell of civilian rule in its post-colonial history.
